Abstract : The objectives of this work were to develop slope calculation and mapping algorithms for use with Sea Beam bathymetry data. The ability to quantify and map in geographic coordinates apparent bottom slopes, as measured by the sonar in a given region, provides important clues for the level of acoustic bottom reverberation that can be expected from the region on purely geometric grounds
